Does a stew sound a bit too time-consuming for you on a busy working day? You may use a pressure cooker for this dish to cut down on the cooking time substantially. Just heat the pressure cooker up to the required pressure. Then turn to medium low heat and cook for 10 minutes until steam releases through the safety valve ~ recipe adapted from Dinner for 2
